About 21, riot police ringed the area to quell any protests by Roh supporters who accuse conservative political opponents led by the president, Lee Myung-bak, who succeeded Roh last year, of driving the liberal ex-leader to his death. The criticism comes as Lee faces an increasingly belligerent North Korea, which just two days after Roh's death carried out a nuclear test in a move widely condemned as a violation of international law.
Roh Moo-hyun legacy resonates
Roh, 62, killed himself on 23 May by jumping off a cliff behind his home in the southern village of Bongha. He denied the bribery allegations, but the accusations weighed heavily on a man who prided himself on his record as a clean politician in a country struggling to shake a tradition of corruption. Roh's suicide stunned the nation of 49 million — the outspoken self-taught former human rights lawyer had swept into office on a populist tide, and was celebrated as a leader for the people and a favourite among the young.
Though many were critical of his anti-establishment ways, others rallied around his efforts to promote democracy, fight corruption and seek rapprochement with North Korea. Roh "lived a life dedicated entirely to human rights, democracy and fight against authoritarianism", the prime minister, Han Seung-soo, said at the palace funeral.
Last weekend, Roh supporters refused to let Han and others from the ruling Grand National party pay their respects in Bongha, with some dousing the politicians with water and pelting them with eggs. Daniel K.
